New Delhi: Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar was slapped in the face by a Delhi youth who had only four days ago kicked former minister Sukh Ram after he was sentenced in a corruption case. As his horrified aides watched and cameras whirred, Harvinder Singh attacked the minister who was walking with officials at the NDMC centre here. Pawar appeared to lose his balance momentarily but recovered fast. Dressed in a blue striped T-shirt, the turbaned Sikh took out his kirpan before he was overpowered by guards. 'Sab chor hain... cheer doonga... cheer doonga (They're all thieves. I will rip them apart), the man shouted as he was being whisked away. The man who said he was a transporter from Rohini said the common person was fed up with rising prices of food items and corruption. 'I am a man, I did this. Yes I'm right!' he shouted in rage. 'Dikha diya maine... (I have shown it.) Today is Guru Tegh Bahadur martyrdom day,' Harvinder Singh said defiantly as he was hustled away and added that he was responsible for the assault on Sukh Ram too. Harvinder Singh, who was detained at the Parliament Street police station, had Nov 19 attacked Sukh Ram at the Rohini courts complex after his sentencing in a 1996 telecom scam case. The octogenarian former minister was unhurt.
